    fuel filler flap

    Wash the car, when drying it for some reason I open the fuel filler flap and found it full of water, could not see a drain hole !!

    This does not seem very good if the water collects there, anybody else seen this ?

    There should be a drain in the fuel filler aperture there is on mine. It could be blocked with crap get a pipe cleaner.

    Vile Invention

    Dark was that day when Diesel conceived his grim engine that begot you, vile invention, more vicious, more criminal than the camera even, metallic monstrosity, bale and bane of our culture, chief woe of our Commonweal. How dare the Law prohibit hashish and heroin yet license your use, who inflate all weak inferior egos? Their addicts only do harm to their own lives: you poison the lungs of the innocent, your din dithers the peaceful, and on choked roads hundreds must daily die by chance-medley. Nimble technicians, surely you should hang your heads in shame. Your wit works mighty wonders, has landed men on the Moon, replaced brains by computers, and can smithy a "smart" bomb. It is a crying scandal that you cannot take the time or be bothered to build us, what sanity knows we need, an odorless and noiseless staid little electric brougham.

    Garage man filled car all fuel stations are generally self serve. It doesn't matter if he used the bottom by the drain hole when you put the can back on the drain hole will be used.
